    You shouldn't bisect blindly.

    Looking at the series file
    (ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/akpm/patches/2.6/2.6.17-rc5/2.6.17-rc5-mm2/patch-series):

    ...
    add-scsi_add_host-failure-handling-for-nsp32.patch
    qla1280-fix-section-mismatch-warnings.patch
    bogus-disk-geometry-on-large-disks.patch
    bogus-disk-geometry-on-large-disks-warning-fix.patch
    megaraid_sas-switch-fw_outstanding-to-an-atomic_t.patch
    megaraid_sas-add-support-for-zcr-controller.patch
    megaraid_sas-add-support-for-zcr-controller-fix.patch
    ...

    megaraid_sas-add-support-for-zcr-controller-fix.patch is a fix against
    megaraid_sas-add-support-for-zcr-controller.patch, so if the bisection
    lands you on megaraid_sas-add-support-for-zcr-controller.patch then
    obviously one should apply
    megaraid_sas-add-support-for-zcr-controller-fix.patch by hand as well.

    You'll often find great streams of similarly-named contiguous patches - you
    should apply either all of them or none of them. Otherwise you're testing
    a known-to-be-broken kernel which has an already-available fix ;)

    http://www.zip.com.au/~akpm/linux/patches/stuff/bisecting-mm-trees.txt
    describes the bisection technique I use.

    If you're using git-bisect, well, try to have a nice day anyway.

    Would be great, thanks.
